Interesting documentary showing who's who in Washington during the war. And they all have something to say! Each guy profiled has a 2-3 sentence of rah rah to say before either moving into the next one, or the commenary pointing out how busier Washington seems to be since the War broke out! We're out to win wars! Not to lose them! Yeaaaah, tell that to the Vietnam soldiers..
